16th Century German Mace
By the 15th Century, armor had become so well developed that it was almost impervious to a sword cut and even a thrust. This heavy German mace, which evolved from man's oldest weapon, the club, could make short work of armor. With a few full sound blows the best of plate would be so damaged that the wearer's movement would be greatly impaired, quickly leading to defeat. Hand crafted from high carbon steel with a blackened finish. Has an eight flanged head. Handle is wrapped in black leather. 24" overall. Weighs around 4 pounds.
